4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from a local shop. Aroma is orange peel, grapefruit feel, and light resin/malt. Pours slightly hazy and amber with a nice big sticky head, the kind that sticks to the glass. Taste is citrussy and sweet with apricot, grapefruit and a nice sticky malt back. This one was bottled about three months ago so I’m curious to see how amazing this would be fresh. Very enjoyable.

Pours a hazy pale yellow, thick stuff... White mid size head. Aroma is grapefruit, citra, piney hop, grass. Taste is super gooey fruits, dank hop resin, sweet malt but good balance. Pretty solid stuff, med mouthfeel... Juicy/gooey fruit and hops, finishes full of citrus hop. Nice

Bue à la pression. Couleur dorée, trouble. Assez douce dans l’ensemble, on ne sent l’amère que sur la finale, plutôt sèche du coup.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at AC Beerfest (2014). Poured a hazy light orange color with a nice foamy off white head. Aroma of sweet citrus, bread crust, citrus zest, and pine. Taste is much the same with a stronger caramel malt backbone coming through.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pour is a lightly hazed golden yellow with lots of white head and some large bubbles. Nose is heavy bready malt and caramel. Hints of hop but very faint. Either completely old extra or just a rough nose. Taste is much of the same, provides a bit more resin and pine hop. Still not hop forward. Not very good.

Ljus med mycket bra doft. Tyvärr så slår alkoholsmaken igenom så att detcsänker betyget en hel del. Smaken är söt med kolatoner med bra beska.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On-tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: Slightly hazy golden orange with a thin off-white head. The head settles to a very thin coating with a creamy ring.
Aroma: Big overripe mango, sweet orange and hints of pine. The aroma is very clean with good strength.
Taste: Big fruitiness from the hops, mango, pineapple and oranges come to mind with a hint of grapefruit. Lots of flavor! The bitterness is mild and the malt base is rather simple but matches the bitterness. Grapefruit and floral notes linger for a moment.
Palate: Full-bodied, mild to moderate carbonation.
Overall: A very very nice imperial IPA. A great amount of flavor and balance along with a hop profile I can agree with. The price would be a bit pricey looking at a 4 pack, but it’s a good value considering the size. I would take this over any Maine Beer Co. IPA for instance. Well done.
